The Joint Committee for International Health Facilities' accreditation has renewed the accreditation of King Khaled Eye Specialist Hospital for a period of three years. This accreditation comes as a result of the strict adherence to the international health standards in the provision of health services to ophthalmic patients in various specialties and in recognition of its efforts for the patients' safety and care. The hospital was one of the first hospitals in the region to achieve the accreditation in 2001.
It is worth noting that the Joint Commission for Health Facility Accreditation works with hundreds of health care institutions, ministries of health and international organizations. It is the world's leading healthcare accreditation committee. The certificates it awards constitute an international accreditation for the best practice in quality and patient safety.
Dr. Abdul Aziz Al Rajhi, Executive Chief of King Khaled Specialist Eye Hospital, thanked the technical and administrative staff for their continuous efforts and dedication in serving patients which resulted in the successful renewal of accreditation.
